About Me

Hi, I’m Gracela Einarson… but everybody calls me Grace. I am from Mindanao, the second largest island in the Philippines. I am now based in Spain.

I grew up in Davao City where I studied for a Bachelor’s degree in teaching and passed my national licensure exam. I also have a TEFL certification.

Due to my interest in real estate, I studied and took my exam for real estate brokerage and got my REB license. Later on, I worked in the Housing Dept of the Philippine Social Security System – Davao Branch. I am also trained as a virtual assistant.

I am now learning Spanish and pursuing my passion for blogging and personal styling.

On this site, you will find posts about Davao and Mindanao, my life in Spain, insights, and opinions, my travels and personal style topics. This blog also sums up my life-long motto: LIVE, LOVE and LEARN. I also want to hear from you so feel free to comment on any of my posts. You can also communicate with me directly if you have any questions.

I’m married to a Norwegian, Eldar, who is the editor and main photographer of this blog. He will also give inputs if there are topics that he can fill in with his knowledge. Here is one of his credentials: Certificate from the Norwegian Film Institute.

If you wonder why my blog is called Mindanao Advice, you will find the reason here. Stay updated with the footprints of my life by visiting Mindanao Advice’s Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages:)
